A friend is putting together a game/puzzle exhibit at a school science fair (ages 7 - 13) and thought a few things like this might go nicely. Ideally, these should be things which could be made from wood, played on a table top, and require some abstract thinking to solve.
Classics like the fox, goose and beans puzzle
are great, but I probably don't know most of them. I'd like to avoid puzzles which require much special knowledge, such as chess or roman numerals
. Any ideas for what might go well in that setting?
